One of the first things the ancients did was build a temple for Melqart, comparable to the Greek Hercules. It became part of many major empires over the centuries, including the Moorish and the Romans. It has also been the seat of many revolutions, adding to its historical importance. In recent years, landmarks and other important structures have been cleaned and restored, making it a charming place for tourists.

A Roman Theatre was discovered here in 1980 having been built by order of Lucius Cornelius Balbus in the 1st century BC. It is actually the second largest of its kind in existence. For a look back into the 1300s, you can also check out the intact old city walls and gates including El Arco de los Blancos, which leads to the Populo district.
